FAT32 has no security. So until you decide you like NTFS, then you don't get security.
Best of luck,
I have WinXP Pro SP1, with all the critical Windows updates. File system is FAT32. Protected by NAV2004, updated frequently. In addition, there are Ad-Aware 6, Spybot S&D, CWS Shredder, Stinger, SpywareBuster and Housecall is ran frequebtly. In also have ZoneAlarm (free version)
I have two User accounts with Admin privileges, password protected. The Guest account is off, and the original Main Administtrator account also password protected, is hidden.
Recently, I created a 'Limited' user account. First usage required that I supplied a password. This was done. My annoyances:
? A limited account user " can create or remove your password". This, I found I could not do do, getting the message "Windows cannot remove the password. Password and/or account policies require the account to have a password.".
? A limited account user can "View files you created" and "View files in the Shared Documents folder.". This seems to mean that other files cannot be viewed/opened. However, I found that for a MS Word Docement crerated by one of the Users with Admin privileges, 'Limited User' can access the document via the Word's Open menu, although clicking the file icon only runs the application.
My intention of creating the 'limited' user account is to let a visitor use my computer, but without him accessing my files, and to let him create his own password. Why do I have the two annoyances ? Have I missed something ?
Thanks for any adeas and suggestions.
